Test results may be obtained over the telephone.
Please ring between 2.00 and 5.00pm to speak with a receptionist who will read the health professionals' comments from the screen.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or, if they are not capable of understanding the results, these will be released to a parent, guardian or carer.
When you take your test you should be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. In general we quote 3 days for simple blood tests, 1-3 weeks for complex blood tests, 3-5 days for urine, swabs and faeces tests and a week for x-ray tests.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
